Besides the styles and tables purgeable with native command, RadicalPurge offers the opportunity to purge other unreferenced objects: groups, annotative scales, external references (DWG references, raster images, underlays) and obsolete entities (empty text and entity zero length).


The RPURGE command opens a dialog box to select the types of objects to purge. 


A LISP function: gc-Purge is provided.

    Whether it is possible to make support of autocad 2010?

    You can have a look here (French language): http://cadxp.com/topic/36835-radical-purge

  • Efficace et rapide : bien !
    Sylvain Gonot | October 14, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    dommage que les commandes "EPURE","CONTROLE" et voir "DEFDUCALQUE" ne soient pas intégrées (avec leurs options respectives !) Merci encore pour ce très bon plugin (et prometeur !)

  • Lo estoy probando
    Renato Chavez Cajahuanca | August 19, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Me parece que va bien, pero le faltaría las escalas

  • Easy to Use and Very Good Purge Program
    Andrew Goetz | August 06, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I downloaded this mostly to easily remove unreferenced X-Ref and PDFs from drawing. The gc-Purge LISP function allows me to easily run in via script for batch purges. The only issue I have had is that if fails to remove unreferenced data extraction (.dxe) files from the drawing. Is there any chance Radical Purge could remove unreferenced .dxe files in the future? Thanks, Andrew

  • Hello gillles plz tell me the method ............how can i download it and use with cauto cad

    Very nice! Reduce size of the drawings drammaticaly! Thanks!

  • OK
    George Flowers | April 23, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Ran RPURGE and file size was larger. Ran standard autocad purges and files sizes were larger. Finally ran Toolpac's purge option and the file size was smaller, but RegApps were not purged. After running autocad -purge, the file size was larger. Size increase was 15 and decrease was 40.

  • Possibly Useful
    Craig Smith | April 21, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    But why is it as an msi, instead of a lisp routine? I don't really want to run something like that when I don't know what it is going to change. I have enough trouble keeping things working as it is.

    Gilles Chanteau (Publisher) | April 22, 2014

    Hi Craig, First, RadicalPurge is not a LISP routine, it's a .NET application (C#). Anyway any application on Exchange Apps have been tested and approved by Autodesk Exchange Apps team before publishing. The msi is built by Autodesk, it only deploy the RadicalPurge.bundle folder in %appdata%\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins and register the application so that it is accessible from Control Panel.

  • Indispensable
    Thierry DALET | April 08, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Remplace largement la fonction purge d'origine qui était incomplet. Merci Gilles

  • Graet App, Deeper than PURGE
    Danny Korem | March 25, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This Great APP really does the Job, It gets rid of RegApps & Annotation Scales and Always finds more to Purge than AutoCAD. I'd like an Option (not necessarily Free of Charge) that could be applied on selected files &/or Folders & Subfolders dannyk contact@sophisticadd.com

  • it works fine
    MATT SHOAI | October 14, 2013 Verified Download (What's this?)

  • I like it!
    Brandon Lugar | September 26, 2013 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Would be nice to include and option for purging the standards dws files.

  • Nicely done, Gilles
